Mali are the leaders of the group with ten points gained in four matches with 5-1 aggregate goal difference. The team is two points ahead to the closest contenders Benin. Mali played nine matches in 2016, recording five victories, two draws and two defeats with 8-7 aggregate goal difference. Mali played six of these matches on the road, taking three victories, one draw and suffering two defeats.
South Sudan and Mali national teams played only one head-to-head in the reverse fixture of the group. South Sudan have no objectives remaining in this campaign while Mali still need points in battle for the first place in the group that would give the team a place in main stage of the competition. Moreover, the visitors are simply more skilled side as should take a victory on the road.
Prediction for the match: Mali to win.
